"In the retort smelting of zinc ores one of the chief metallurgical problems is to obtain as complete a reduction of the zinc as is consistent with economical operation. Among the factors influencing the completeness of reduction are the temperature and time of distillation, the form in which the zinc exists in the ore, the form of carbon used as reducer, and the size of the particles or ore and reducer"--Introduction, page 1.
